GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Sorrel Red-Veined  is a hardy perennial in zones 5 and up forming medium-sized clumps of gorgeous green and red leaves.
  • It is also called bloody dock or bloody sorrel, is a member of the buckwheat family and grown for its edible leaves.
  • You can grow it as a fast-growing annual in a salad garden or containers.
  • The plants grow in tidy clumps that when mature are around twelve inches tall and eighteen inches wide. 
  • It may be edible, but you don’t need to plant sorrel in a food garden.
  • It makes a beautiful low border along the front of a perennial garden or mixes it with other foliage or flowering plants in garden beds.
  • Or, plant it in a perennial herb garden.
  • Sorrel is generally added to mixed green salads and enjoyed in moderation.
  • Cooking breaks down some of the oxalic acids.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Sorrel likes a slightly acidic soil pH; somewhere in the range of 5.5 to 6.8.
  • Since sorrel is grown for its leaves, soil rich in organic matter will give you lots of leafy, green growth.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Keep the plant in top form by feeding the plants with a dilute solution of liquid fertilizer.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Direct morning sunlight or bright shade, these plants dislike extreme heat so please avoid the hot afternoon sun.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water when the top 1 inch of soil feels dry, make sure to deeply water each time but remove excess water so as to not drown the roots.
